The Canadian Episcopal Conference has issued a statement on the persecution of Christians around the world. The document, prepared by the Justice and Peace Commission, states that “today, no less than 327 million Christians live in countries marked by religious persecution.”
It identifies different degrees of harassment, which begins with intolerance and discrimination and goes as far as persecution and genocide. Additionally, it mentions that several Christians suffer in Canada where the authorities impose new “limitations on religious freedom in the public sphere.”
Despite the latent threat, the bishops stressed that the faithful must continue with to proclaim the Gospel. For them, believers must go against the tide, even when it can be destabilizing.
